Workshop Aerial Robotics: Challenges and opportunities for heavy lifting in extreme environments
In the past decade, particularly smaller drones have started to claim their share of the sky due to their potential applications in the civil sector as flying-eyes, noses, and very recently as flying hands. In particular small and light weight drones have been instrumental in applications such as search and rescue, surveillance, entertainment, firefighting, agriculture and inspection and maintenance. However, the most widely used small drones have payload limitations and they are often not suited to operate in adverse weather conditions.
In this workshop, the current state-of-the-art, challenges and opportunities regarding heavy lifting in extreme environments using drones will be presented. The workshop is intended to be a platform to initiate possible collaboration in these topics (drones for heavy lifting in extreme environments) in a form of knowledge exchange, pilot project and many more.
